Targeting Prevention Assistance to Reduce Homelessness


Unprecedented federal and state investments have the potential to stabilize the housing of millions of people under threat of eviction and homelessness. But are the funds being used effectively and equitably so they will actually reduce homelessness? This workshop will provide an overview of existing and emerging research that should shape how policymakers structure and target rental assistance funds. Promising program and policy strategies to prevent homelessness will be explored as will guiding principles to advance an equitable and just use of resources.
